Darksiders II hits next summer, “anticipated” Wii U launch title

THQ has confirmed that Darksiders II will bring Death to summer 2012.

That’s when the PC, PS3 and 360 versions of the game will launch, but the company is also hoping that the game will be among the launch titles for Nintendo’s Wii U. “It is also anticipated to be a launch title for Wii U,” a statement from the publisher reads (via Eurogamer).

Just when the Wii U will launch is currently unknown, though such plans are expected to be announce at next year’s E3. There’s no word on if Wii U’s other big third-party title, Batman: Arkham City, will also be hitting the system.
